...because home doesn't happen overnight.

After last week’s post which discussed a few of my favorite Etsy shops that offer handmade pillow covers, I’ve decided it would be fun to feature Etsy sellers from time to time that offer affordable and stylish items for the home.  So, today I’d like to introduce you to The Home Centric.  I purchased the vintage ruffle pillow cover in my living room from this Etsy shop.

I was a little nervous about having a satin pillow cover in the house with 2 young kiddos, but I’m happy to say that it’s held up well against wrestling matches and pillow fights.  It’s just as sweet and feminine as the day it arrived.  In fact, it’s one of the rare sweet and feminine things in this house full o’ boys {and me}!

The Home Centric is based out of India and specializes in handcrafted pillow covers that add texture, color and even a bit of glitz to any room.  Just look at a few of the gor.ge.ous pillows below all bedazzled in The Home Centric’s best.

Crazy good, right?!  Ruffles and sequins and buttons, oh my!  Seriously, these pillow covers are like jewelry for your furniture.  Many of the covers are available for less than $30.  And if you purchase more than one cover per order, you only have to pay shipping charges for one pillow cover. Nervous about ordering online from an international seller?  Don’t be.  The Home Centric has over 1,000 feedback responses with nearly 100% of customers reporting a positive shopping experience.  {Did you know you can check all Etsy sellers’ feedback ratings?}

If you’re in the market for a fresh throw pillow or just want to kill some time looking at pretty things, click on over to The Home Centric and see what else it has to offer.  You won’t be disappointed. Pinky swear.

FYI – I was not compensated in any way for this post.  I just love sharing good stuff.

Kelly – The chair that the fern pillow is on resides in our nursery. It’s from IKEA about 6 years ago but I think they still carry it.

I’ve never purchased anything from Etsy, so I like the features you’re doing on sellers you like. There’s just so much to choose from, it’s nice to have guidance.

I have a similar chair from Crate and Barrel, but it needs a new cushion–did you make yours? We have a tufted cushion from Pier 1, but it’s not really quite the right size, and it’s not that comfortable!

Carole – I found the chair on the side of the road in the pouring rain. I whipped my car around and threw it in. I stained the wood and made the cushions/cushion covers. I used 4″ & 5″ foam and then made slipcovers myself from the green geometric fabric.

I have a huge, almost painful addiction to pretty pillow covers… and now my addiction is enabled!

I have 8 pillow covers from The Home Centric- I just LOVE her pillows. I have never found any that are so unique and add such glitz and glamour to my plain couches. Every time someone new walks into my house the first thing they notice is the pillows on my couches- every time!

I have 2 more on my Christmas list that I am hoping my husband buys for me :) He thinks I am pillow-crazy, though.

Totally recommend her as well for anyone curious!

Hi Dana!

I’m a new reader to your blog and I must confess, I’m already hooked! You have great style and I love how you keep things budget-friendly. I’ve been back-reading a bunch of your posts and just came across your “Dressed Dresser” post with the picture of your baby shoe. I saw the date on the shoe and your comment about your birthday being 5 days later and realized…today is your birthday! So Happy Birthday to you, hope your day is lots of fun!!

(and thanks for the info on the sisal rug under your dining table…that was me who asked!)

hi,
just came across your post promoting the etsy seller of your cushion and its sad to see a perfect example of someone misusing etsy. Her shop has more than a 1000 items for sale, they are DEFINITELY not handmade by her, most likely by a sweatshop of workers she employs/ outsources from, for a tiny fraction of what you are charged with. Etsy has been founded on certain principles to promote handmade and a lot of buyers do not even report when something is fishy…..in this case- she has 1500 positive feedbacks but no one suspected foulplay?
